Between Breaths

Moon and tree


We could be an opera

if we tell it right.

That night we first kissed —

in the telling, remember

the tree on the hill

and say:  “In the dark

the moon followed us home.”

But you wouldn’t let me keep it.

  1. This is beautiful, Sorry I missed reading it, but glad that I came back – reading two grids can be tricky!
    “We could be an opera/ if we tell it right.” such a powerful line!

  2. I too missed this the first time around; just not enough hours in the day (Thursdays especially!). This is stunning! I love every word and the feeling it left with me. Glad Nate highlighted it in the coffeehouse 🙂

So what do you think?
